Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Saturday 25 June 2016 at 2:25 pm

23-year old righty reliever Dylan Bundy came into this season as the Baltimore Orioles‘ #1 prospect according to Baseball America.  But, due to his injuries in the past, he was out of options heading into spring training, so the Orioles couldn’t (and still can’t) send Bundy to the minors without exposing him to waivers.  So they have moved him to the bullpen (he has been a starter his whole professional career) to keep him healthy and monitor his workload in 2016.  He has pitched in 19 games (0 starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 2-1 with a 3.90 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP.  He has given up 38 hits and 9 walks while whiffing 19 batters in his first 30 innings pitched so far this year!  Bundy has pitched in 4 games (0 starts) so far in June and he is 1-0 with a 2.00 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP.  The Orioles hope that Bundy is finally starting to adjust to his new role working out of the pen.  He has now pitched in 21 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Orioles and he is 2-1 with a 3.69 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP.
